12077: Continuing to control feral pigs in the Shire of West Arthur
Land use in the Shire of West Arthur is dominated by agriculture; however it still retains 30 per cent of its original remnant vegetation, which is home to numerous rare flora and fauna species.
Feral pigs are a threat to both sustainable agriculture and the ongoing health of remnant vegetation in the area.
This project will work with local landholders to:
- monitor and trap pigs
- undertake workshops on trap building and identifying damage caused by pigs
- record and map pig numbers.
